The FUT Champions Cup April will once again gather the elite FIFA 19 pros in the world. The biggest names in FIFA 19 eSports like F2Tekkz, MsDossary and Nicolas99FC will be competing in London for valuable FIFA 19 Global Series Points that will allow them to continue climbing the FIFA 19 Global Series Rankings. The top 60 players in the Rankings as of June 1, 2019 will earn a spot to the FIFA 19 Global Series Playoffs.
Check out the complete list of competitors.
Donovan “F2Tekkz” Hunt has quickly established himself as the most dominant FIFA 19 player on the planet. After announcing his arrival onto the pro scene by winning the FUT Champions Cup Barcelona during FIFA 18 Global Series, the then-sixteen-year old was unable to replicate the form that saw him lift the trophy early in the season.
Fast-forward to the November 2018 and F2Tekkz once again started his competitive season with a bang by winning the first FUT Champions Cup of the FIFA 19 Global Series. The British phenom has not let up his top form since and it is seemingly only getting better. Since his victory in Bucharest back in November, F2Tekkz has continued to add trophies to his now bulging cabinet. Victories at the PGL FIFA 19 Cup in December, the FIFA eClub World Cup in February, the ELEAGUE FUT Champions Cup in Atlanta and the PGL FUT Champions Cup March (not to mention his qualification victories to represent Liverpool at the ePremier League Final and England at the upcoming FIFA eNations Cup) has seen Hunt firmly secure his spot as the number 1 ranked Xbox player in the world. With five tournament wins including four major tournament victories and three back-to-back-to-back trophies heading into London, all eyes will be on F2Tekkz.
Who will be the pro who is able to cut the Englashman’s title streak? There will be several talented competitors in London who will try to dethrone Hunt. Check out five other players you should keep your eye on at the FUT Champions Cup April.
